Greetings from Ogden, Utah, USA

Recommended Posts

Or Salt Lake City adjacent as that's a place you may have heard of, random reader 🙂

I had a hand-me-down VIC-20 and Commodore 64 as a kid. Just a little past their heyday but I absolutely loved them. I think they had no small part in what I do both for work and for play to this very day. I somewhat recently fell down a rabbit hole and found this thriving retro community. It's been delightful to rediscover the magic (and frustrations) of 8 bit computing. I appreciate the goals of this project and am excited to see it progress.

The retro computing and gaming "rabbit hole" has pulled me in many times, and I don't mind at all. I love modern hardware and a lot of modern games, but to be honest, the excitement just isn't the same for me these days. Back in the 80's and early 90's, everything just seemed more ... awesome? Not sure how to describe it.

Ogden caught my eye. It's a name used in the Harry Potter books, specifically in The Half-Blood Prince. It actually means "Oak Valley". Huge fan of the series. Just one more bit of useless knowledge stuck in my head. lol
